"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Paddy is continuing to be happy and settled here and Keith and he have bonded beautifully. There is just one thing that concerns me though. I told Keith that, in order for a dog to realise his place in the 'pack', it is advisable for us to eat before Paddy does and he has taken that on board; so much so that, before he gives Paddy his dog biscuits, he eats one himself.
I refuse, absolutely refuse, to buy Keith his own packet of dog biscuits when I do the shopping!

Just a little advice. From now on when you go out with Keith it will be advisable to take a couple of polythene bags with you - just in case!

You'll be sorry when his nose goes dry and you have to catch the frisbee yourself.

I should start to worry when he rolls over for you to tickle his tummy x

YP, trust you to lower the tone!
Ian, I actually prefer Keith when his nose is dry - yes really!
Rosie, what makes you think he doesn't already?;)

What concerns me, is that you (as Alpha Bitch, tee hee) are the head of the pack, which makes Keith and Paddy the Betas. We all know that Betas squabble more than a little, and there are no worse squabbles than over food.

I'd watch those two very carefully indeed, if I were you. ROFL!

I hink you could be right there, Jay!
